ReadDavidson

ReadDavidson is a town-wide initiative organized by a group of avid readers, Main Street Books, and the Davidson Public Library.  Since 2007, books have been chosen annually, and book-related events have been planned to make each book come to life.  Each year, Davidson residents are invited to participate in programs and events.

Nominations are now closed.  The 2021 planning committee will consider all nominations and announce its selection in December 2020.  Thanks to everyone who submitted a suggestion!
